Hobby Robotics to the extreme

Something posted to our dprg mail list. Thought you guys might want to look.

Looks like one of Kenneth Maxon’s creations! I was at one of the DPRG contests many years ago, it was a lot of fun!

Looks like some kind of NASA Mars rover prototype on steriods. Can you even buy all those shiny parts off the shelf? I guessing many must be custom machined…

Jeff you are right. here is the full website about it. http://www.users.qwest.net/~kmaxon/page/side/robot110_137.htm

woo. That cat is milling maniac. :slight_smile:

Did you see his studio? :o :o :o


And he put photo of his living room to prove that he doesn’t sleep in that lab ;D

What is that red thing?


The red thing looks like a hydraulic press…

@ robot: HOLY CRAP :o
@ studio: I WANT ONE OF THOSE!! :dance:
@ robots in studio: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall:
